pressure for cuts to boost the ailing eurozone economy. the ecb president, mario draghi, said the bank is ready to help buy eurozone bonds to help troubled eurozone member countries. how did the markets react to the latest developments? our correspondent sent us this report from the frankfurt stock exchange. >> inflation has spiked. it is a surprising development. one that has probably prevented the ecb from lowering rates in the eurozone in this month of october. what is more, mario draghi, the president of the ecb, does not expect inflation to come down significantly until next year. still, though the economy is in recession, perhaps rate cut are still a possibility in the eurozone. nonetheless, the situation irritated the markets. the stock market was not able to do much. it did strengthen the euro. that really went up, probably not least because of the statement also by mario draghi that the ecb would be ready today to start its bond buying program -- if spain does request help from the esm and fulfills the conditions. >> let's take a closer look at the numbers. the dax ended the d

, which had been at odds at the scope of the ecb's new powers and when they will be put in place. and it was a long night for the chancellor, but in the end, angela merkel got what she wanted. a eurozone banking supervisor will not go into operation in germany. >> people need to be brought together in a whole new authority, which today, on october 19, does not even have a legal framework ready on the horizon. no one can tell me it is going to be up and running by january and better than anything we currently have. it just would not work. >> instead, you leaders agreed to have the legal framework in place by january 1 -- eu leaders agreed. the european central bank is to lead the mechanism, but the precise number of banks to be monitored and what powers it will have remained unclear. france was looking for more rapid action. >> what do i feel about this meeting? it took longer than what is really necessary because there was already a basic agreement between germany and france, but it took longer because it was also a debate between those in the eurozone than those outside. >> thos

displaced in large part by the ecb's actions i don't think it will be as big of a factor going forward. we look for some resolution of the fiscal cliff, which is probably weighing on corporate sentiment and i believe 2013 the earnings outlook will improve. >> do you think this earnings season is factored in our markets? >> yes, bill, i do. i think the equity market as a general rule is a decent discounter of the near-term future. we have seen weaker gdp numbers. i think earnings being soft is largely reflected in the market. >> it was five years ago this week the dow hit its all-time high. we saw a selloff this week. we are still not that far away from that peak of five years ago. do you think we will get back there anytime soon? >> yes, we do. i think you can definitely see record equity highs by year end. even though the market has taken a long time to get back up top those near previous highs, keep in mind that multiples are much lower, interest rates are much lower, korptd balance sheets are in much better shape. yes, i think it is a matter of time before we break the old highs and set

and the threat that if you engage against the ecb, they're going to come after you with a big stick this time. do you get the sense that at least for the next three to six months, the market the prepared to buy the line? >> i think the european crisis has gone way on to the back burner. all the tools are in place to fight the crisis. it's a question of political will now and social cohesion in the face of austerity. i think the market believes t t that. the market believes the ecb. they believe draghi. i think the rise is unfavorable political parties. >> as you continue to make the point, this issue of debt still remains stubbornly at the heart of the european crisis. >> about 6% of the loan box was written off by banks. if f you look at the japanese bank, it's about 20%. the u.s. are 12 at the moment. the europeans are still about 3.9. i think there's an awful lot of debt which has got to be addressed and written off over time. i think balance sheets are still not strong enough. i think the european crisis, while off the radar at the moment, i think it still needs to be fixed in the longer ter

. >> bob samuelson. >> i rated for the "washington post." you did not mention the ecb and i'm just wondering, when you look back on the craze says, does the ecb bear any responsibility for the crisis? were there things that did that shouldn't have done and things that didn't do that it should have done? >> well, i have a general comment about the instruments of macroeconomic policy in any given market. when you are having a restrict to fiscal policy, the logical compensation reflects policy and byways but it happened in the u.s. and the u.k. so i would welcome a policy in europe to be coddled with restrictive policy. but is the european center? i was the european central bank regime of this issue? i think is doing a great job. first of all it is operated it is operated banks. injecting 1 trillion banks. injecting 1 trillion euros in this time. that means that the proper role of the central bank has been in there. and in the role of the european central bank has addressed the issue for a framework that has been announced prior to september. when he defined a framework in which the e

into consideration. first, there must be a clear separation between the responsibilities of the ecb. the ecb should be able to carry out supervision in a differentiated manner, meaning using national authorities and supervisory tasks as much as possible. it will be designed and implemented with the integrity of the markets of financial services in mind. and finally, the mechanism should be inclusive and transparent. all member states are free and invited to join. these opener should be reflected in the structure with appropriate rights and obligations for all. it is the first essential step towards a complete integrated framework for the financial sector. other steps also need to be taken quickly, starting with harmonizing national resolution and guaranteed schemes following which the commission will propose a single resolution mechanism. as agreed in june, direct capitalization by the europeans debility mechanism would be possible once it has been established. we ask the euro group to drop an exact operational criteria. for a stable come economic and monetary union, we also need frameworks for bud

on the comments of the fed, the ecb, they have not really turned their droex earnings at this point. once we see companies missing estimates and revenue targets, that will certainly start to filter in to the way markets trade. >> are you predicting that individual stocks will fall when they disappoint or that the market will fall? not that they disappoint, let me rephrase it, when they come through with profits lower, do you believe the stocks will fall or that the market will fall? >> i think it will have no impact on the overall market depending on how many companies report misses, if they do, but also what the guidance is for the fourth quarter and even in 2013 not painting such a py picture at this point. so i think it really does depend also on what the guidance is going forward. >> inevitably, good to talk to you. christine schult, senior manager at s&p capital. melissa, you have the 5:00 show and know earnings season starts tonight and you'll talk about alcoa. >> we will also be on the conference calls. thank you for that, simon. we have another market flash here, this time within the clo

. and that is the ecb, the european central bank, continues to stabilize the command in europe and the fed itself in the united states. and the eurozone governments, particularly germany, acts in a cooperative way to fund a weak european sovereign debt. further, the european banks raise the course of the capital they have to raise. and the ecb takes off troubled loans and they earn money with a positive yield slow curve. the european financial institutions are earning their way out of the hole. let me just say that there have been two schools of thought. one school of thought has been that the problem is so complex, so difficult to understand that it exceeds one bandwidth then they don't want to invest. the second school of thought, which i perceive would be 45 years and investing, everybody believes that it generally doesn't hit. so maybe it was an wasn't easy way out. what i have been saying is that the breakup of the year awards eurozone, the ecb, the imf, 70% funded by the united states, germany, france, japan, will all chip in to do what they have to do to kick the can down the road. and we

that would be supportive of gold, namely qe 3, the ecb and the bank of japan is already in it. i think ultimately you'll see it fall. i'd look to re-enter that trade after the u.s. election. that's when historically gold and gold equities do well. >> you're talking short term. what about the longer term possible inflationary implications of the very -- the move by the ned to keep rates as low as possible right now? isn't that considered inflationary? wouldn't that be good for gold, long term? >> yeah, absolutely. so if you're looking out 12 months i think you see gold pass $2,000, up, for sure. that's certainly going to happen. if you look at the fmoc meetings from the last meeting, they basely said they're talking off the inflation story. in fact, inflation news or the story would be great for the market. great for gold. >> in the meantime, both of you like stocks over gold. i'll let you -- i'll let you gold bugs out there draw your own conclusions on that one for now. maria? >> bill, thank you so much. >>> we're well off the highs on wall street as we approach this final stretch. i w

in hand to the ecb as early as this weekend. are you expecting that? are you trading on that? what's going on? michelle is already shaking her head. >> traders think that they should ask for the rescue/bailout, but i think they're starting to agree more and more with michelle, which makes the following story that much stranger. you know, ft about an hour and 15 minutes ago beat everybody on what is growing to be a big story. royal bank of scotland, the big bailout they had from the u.k., well the european commission ordered them to liquidate some assets. in 2010, they decided to sell about 320 branches. this was about a $1.6 billion -- excuse me, 1.6 billion pound deal. but the plug was pulled on it. exactly why, there's no comment. but many think it's a deterioration of the balance sheets and the economy in europe. also, it might be more of an aftermath of issues that are haunting royal bank of scotland. in either case, it shows a deterioration that might be a big story coming into next week. >> spain's not asking for a bailout, rick, until their interest rates rise. that's it. maybe they

and whether they ask for aid from the ecb. there was a rumor out today that maybe they'd set up a line of credit. how do you think that resolves itself? >> well, that's the topic we've been discussing here at stanford. i think the general sense is mario draghi, the head of the ecb, has offered a pathway and bought some time. but now the key players have to act. they have to act on the reforms on their fiscal and structural side, but also in particular, spain is likely going to need to face this step. this is something that under their democratic process only they can decide. there's sensitivity with others in germany. frankly, one of the lessons in the european crisis over the past two or three years is if you get a breather and then you wait too long, the markets or something may hit you again. i hope that they act to stabilize. >> you know, on the one hand, it feels like the corporate sector has not been this strong in a long time. you're talking about lean and mean companies, huge cash levels, $3.6 trillion by some estimates. yet, they're sitting on the cash and we seem to be stuck

/dollar trading? >> sure, the euro's had a couple good tail winds recently. you have the ecb not cutting interest rates. in addition, the fact that spain did not get downgraded as many had expected. you've got the ecb offering potentially unlimited intervention to help peripheral countries. that's reduced a lot of downside risk for now. i don't know if it's forever. it's for now. so that's opened the way for a lot of people to cover short euro positions. i think the euro can go higher as long as broader risk appetite remains intact. for me, the election is a big, big deal. even though it's u.s., not europe f the election is messy, if people get nervous about that oar the fiscal cliff, we'll see the euro fall as money goes back to t bills. >> it's a great point. ri rick, what are you seeing today? >> i'm a little nervous about trying to buy the current selloff in the treasury complex because, of course, itti could t a life of its own. on the other hand, they don't say even though starts and new home sales may be improving, there's still a huge foreclosure buildup that may be sitting on the books i

and quiet for the next year and i think you've seen that in the support at the e.c.b. and his bold action. you've seen in the a changing stance on greece and i think the driving force within germany now is we want to have presidential campaign, we want to have o elections, we're going to de with big decisions after that and we just want to hold things together. so in a short term -- on a short-term horizon i'm more optimistic than i was because i see you have the tools to hold things together, particularly the's bees new ability to have the transactions. i think you've got some greater willingness to be flexible with countries like greece, slightly less nutty fiscal policy in the sense that they're not ramming down greater fiscal proliferation. they're huge challenges. thehrinking, the recession is deep. and i'm not clear that they know where they want to go. huge, huge challenge. but compared to where we were i'm less pessimistic. >> i've always been a tiny bit more optimistic. like always these things. i always claim i'm right in the long term but if you take what she just said, there's
